Truth from the hearts of leaders
Very refreshing and insightful podcast and interview. Both Noah and Ken share openly from their experiences in ministry and pastoring a church. Not only for those in ministry, but for anyone who attends a ministry.
I read Noah's blog and have really enjoyed this podcast. He asks honest questions and is able to get his guests to office sincere and helpful responses. Discussions offer a great mix of theology and practical insights. Definitely worth checking out!
Interesting and Engaging Take on Church and Culture
Noah is a lot of fun to listen to and has an engaging dialogue for today's church. Recommended.
